Press Kit Description
The real and virtual worlds collide at Gamescom as Ford reveals the new high-performance Ranger Raptor – both for drivers and gamers. The first ever vehicle launched at Europe’s largest gaming event, held in Cologne, Germany, promises to bring the fun back to on- and off-road driving. It will also be added to the racing game Forza Horizon 4.
At Gamescom, gamers can test their driving skills on eight racing pods and a special 4D racing simulator, built specifically for the event, which offers the nearest-to-real experience imaginable for driving a performance vehicle. Each day’s lap record holder on the 4D simulator will win a trip to the U.K. to spend a day with the M-Sport Ford World Rally Team.
Forza Motorsport 7 players have collectively spent more than 290 years driving a total of more than 346 million kilometres (215 million miles) in Ford vehicles since the game’s launch in 2017, and completed more than 24 million virtual races.
